Updated 4/12/00: An alert reader wrote in saying that News.com is reporting about a group of companies forming a standards body for secure healthcare transactions on the web. Read about it here. The group includes some heavies: ‘…Aetna, PlanetRx.com, the California Medical Association, Cisco Systems, Intel, MedicaLogic, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, VeriSign and Securify…’ This isn’t totally altruistic, the government ‘asked’ them to come to Washington. Cisco? Intel? Hmmm. Interesting article on 32bitsonline about Intel’s plans to Open Source its security software.
